Artificial Intelligence in Education: A Threat or a Tool for Teaching

Abstract

The exponential rise in the use of artificial intelligence in instructional delivery has challenged the academic landscape and provided implications for teaching and learning. Artificial intelligence (AI) becomes one of the emerging issues in higher education. This paper looked into the state university teachers’ views and usage of artificial intelligence in the classroom. Using mixed-method research design, a researcher-made survey questionnaire solicited the teachers’ experiences with the use and non-use of artificial intelligence in their teaching practice. A purposive random sampling technique was used in choosing the thirty university teachers as the research respondents. As such, in the quantitative data, the teachers’ use of AI-powered educational technology in the classroom was identified. For the qualitative data, advantages and disadvantages of the use of AI based on the teachers’ experiences were analyzed using Braun and Clarke’s six-step data analysis. The study found that teachers use canva, chatGPT, educational games, educational chatbots, grammarly, quillbot, and YouTube videos in their classes. The advantages of using AI include personalized learning, having virtual assistants, and streamlining teaching and learning. However, AI also has its disadvantages, as it limits human interaction and empathy, which are essential in the teaching and learning process. The findings offer pedagogical implications and recommendations on how artificial intelligence can help teachers provide personalized learning experiences for their students. AI has been used as a tool in teaching but it can also imply some threats if not properly managed or regulated as it poses ethical challenges in academic work.
